Get involved

Getting Involved

Public engagement describes the ways in which the activity and benefits of education and research in the School of Psychology are shared with the public. Engagement is a two-way process, involving interaction and listening, with the goal of generating mutual benefit.

Public Events

Members of the School of Psychology are very active in organising events and showcasing our research at various different public science festivals and one-off science events.

Our researchers ran around eight separate events and demonstrations at the most recent European Researchers’ Night (LiGHTS). We have also run public events at venues such as Skegness Aquarium, and the Natural History Museum in London.


School Visits

We keep in close contact with local schools and are happy to give one-off talks in schools about the science of psychology and the brain.

If you are interested please get in touch with Dr Fenja Ziegler who co-ordinates public engagement activities in the School.



We are always looking for people over the age of 18 and younger than 90 years old to take part in our research studies. We investigate a range of topics, including how we see, how we remember things, how we make decisions, how we change as we get older, how we pay attention to things around us, how our attitudes are formed and many more.

Students at the University of Lincoln can register an account on our SONA experiment management system and book into any studies you are eligible for and interested in.

Members of the public and members of staff at the university who are interested in taking part in our studies please contact Dr Fenja Ziegler.  

Our youngest volunteers (babies and infants) are invited to the Lincoln Baby Lab which runs studies with infants throughout the year.
